Can my stepdad's health problems be because of his excessive smoking, even if they aren't lung problems?

In brief: Yes

Smoking causes a vast array of health problems, not just limited to the lungs.
Smokers have higher risk of high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and some cancers (outside the lungs) to name a few.
